Overview

In 1855, Buchner, in his Force and Matter: Principles of the Natural Order of the Universe (AB:2), with a System of Morality Based Thereon, building on Descartes and Holbach, and keeping with Holbach in has atheism position, attempted to expand via digression on the "force" behind the motion, or rather the "force" that produces the motion.[1] Hence, Buchner reduced all things in the universe to "force and matter" instead of "matter and force". Buchner's effort, while commendable, e.g. he begins to discuss Clausius, comparatively, amounted to a watered-down or rather less-powerful version of what Holbach produced in greater form.

Quotes | On

The following are quotes on Buchner:

“Mach crowed that he had slain the ‘stuff and force’ dragon of the mechanistic materialism of Buchner, Vogt (Ѻ), and Moleschott. Mach, in short, confused the laws with definitions, and inverted the correct logical relation ‘dynamics entails kinematics.’ He thus sacrificed Newtonian mechanics on the idealist altar.”
— Mario Bunge (2010), Matter and Mind: a Philosophical Inquiry [2]
